Format: Blu-ray
This interesting and informative series from Discovery comes highly recommended. The documentaries chronologically cover the history of NASA from the early Mercury missions, through to Gemini, Apollo, the shuttle launches and beyond, featuring new interviews with most of the key personnel (including a rare appearance from Neil Armstrong).

Although nearly all of the archive footage is grainy and cropped to fit 16:9 widescreen format, the benefit in quality of being transferred to HD is evident and many original films have been included as extras in their original aspect ratio.

The discs are all REGION FREE and can therefore be played anywhere. The only annoying thing is the Discovery Channel commercial which appears every time a disc is loaded, as the song gets on your nerves after a while: "Boom-de-ah-da, Boom-de-ah-da, Boom-de-ah-da, Boom-de-ah-da!" AHHHHHHHH!!!!!

If, like me, you're a fan of documentaries and films about space exploration I would also make these recommendations:

- For All Mankind (Forthcoming blu-ray release of an older documentary film about the Apollo missions with all the classic footage not featured in the others)

- The Planets (1999 BBC documentary series about our solar system and the exploration that has helped our understanding of it)

- Apollo 13 (Ron Howard & Tom Hanks' biopic about the unlucky mission)

- From The Earth The The Moon (Tom Hanks' spin-off docu-dramas about the Apollo Moon-landings)

- In The Shadow Of The Moon (Ron Howard-produced documentary film about the Apollo missions, with entertaining comments from Mike Collins who is sadly absent from
the When We Left Earth series)

- The Right Stuff (Classic, if slightly over-long, 1983 film based on Tom Wolfe's bestseller that charts events from breaking the sound barrier to the end of the Mercury program.)

This is a great little package. There's lots of previously unseen footage here, especially from the earlier missions e.g. Gemini. Plus a Neil Armstrong interview! Overall - good value and nicely packaged. N.B. NTSC discs!

Excellent series, but not a Blu-ray-showcase. Did not include at all Blu-ray moments which you might expect. For example, nice space shots with Blu-ray resolution whould have been nice.
